Make the E-Prescribing Switch With Ease
Incentives for electronic prescribing or e-prescribing go into effect Jan. 1, 2009 as a result of the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPAA) of 2008 (H.R. 6331, Sec. 132). If your practice is considering the switch from paper to e-prescribing, you might first read “A Clinician’s Guide to Electronic Prescribing.”
This guide, first released at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) National Conference on E-prescribing in Boston on Oct. 7, is a collaborative effort of the eHealth Initiative (eHI), the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American College of Physicians (ACP), the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), and the Center for Improving Medication Management.
